camping was great for the most part. Really proud of some of our girls who had never camped before, they did awesome. 2 of the girls don't know how to swim and had never been in a boat before, and they canoed all 15 miles like champs. They started out a little rough, but after a little "on the job training," they were leading the pack for most of the day.

Man, I cannot wait to get my furys, I am so excited!

So I shot my bow quite a bit this afternoon. Shot out to 50 yards for the first time ever. I was pretty pleased with myself. I was able to hold about a 4 inch group with a few stragglers in the 6-7 inch range. Not bad for someone who doesn't shoot near enough and is pretty new to the sport. I am about to start tearing down my bow to re-do some things and I plan on shooting out to 60 yards tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Got a lot done on the bow tonight. Put a couple of twists in the string, tied in a new peep sight, added another cat whisker, and switched the let-off to 65% to 80%. It took a while, as it always does, because I only have a bowmaster press and very limited knowledge. Look forward to shooting it a lot tomorow!

Today has been a great day so far! I got up and did a nice 2.5 mile run. Then, when I got back, my neighbor was giving away his lawn mower because he couldn't get it to run. I have an OLD craftsman riding mower, but this one is much newer and nicer. After changing the plugs, adding oil, and draining the old gas, she started right up. It still needs a new battery, but it ran like a top with a battery box hooked up. I traded up!

I started watching Top Gear today after y'all were talking about it last week and I have to say I really enjoy that show. It is very entertaining and downright hilarious at times. They must have been having a marathon on BBC America because it was on all day long. I must have watched at least 6 episodes.

Got a lot done on the bow tonight. Put a couple of twists in the string, tied in a new peep sight, added another cat whisker, and switched the let-off to 65% to 80%. It took a while, as it always does, because I only have a bowmaster press and very limited knowledge. Look forward to shooting it a lot tomorow!at least you have bow press, i would like to buy some strings for my bow and put them on, but worried about not getting things back together right

Today has been a great day so far! I got up and did a nice 2.5 mile run. Then, when I got back, my neighbor was giving away his lawn mower because he couldn't get it to run. I have an OLD craftsman riding mower, but this one is much newer and nicer. After changing the plugs, adding oil, and draining the old gas, she started right up. It still needs a new battery, but it ran like a top with a battery box hooked up. I traded up!

Howdy all! :)

I usually get 2 dozen arrows around may...I got Carbon Express Mayhems this year. They shoot great! Last year I got Victory V1's and they were awesome as well. Before that I got Gold Tip Pro's and UL 22's...both great arrows as well. I have yet to try Harvest Time arrows.

Plus I can't resist shooting groups sometimes and I can ruin arrows pretty quickly that way.

I quit doing that for the most part...20+ robin hoods in my life...and I dont keep em. I save the good arrow. ;) I do shooot groups when its needed, like changing sights or what not.

It turns out that it's quite a bit cheaper to buy from one of the dealers on here, even after getting them to cut the shafts. i buy my arrows thru here or fleabay, i have my own arrow cutter so I don't have to worry about that

I just ordered 3 dozen Harvest Time HT-2's. Hopefullly they will be as good as everyone says they are and the 3 dozen will last me at least through hunting season.thats a lot of arrows to go thru, what the heck are you shooting at
